I honestly can’t remember where I first saw this stitch, but it has been at the back of my mind ever since. It creates a wonderfully subtle edging that stabilizes the garment while not detracting from the overall look. Plus its very quick and easy.
Begin with a base row of stitches. In this tutorial we’re starting with a row of hdc (see figure 1).
Ch1, and start with a regular ss in your 1st st (see figure 2). Be careful not to make it too tight. This will count as your 1st st.
– *Next, insert your hook into the same st you just worked, yo, and draw up a loop (2 loops on hook) (see figure 3).
– Now insert your hook into the next st, yo, and draw up a loop (3 loops on hook) (see figure 4).
– Take that last loop and pull it through the other 2 loops (see figure 5). **
You have now completed a double slip stitch! Repeat the above instructions from * to ** until you have completed the entire row. Remember to begin by inserting your hook into the stitch you just worked, then into the next stitch (see figure 6). Figure 7 shows what it looks like after you have completed a few stitches, and figure 8 shows what it looks like after you turn your work.
In my pattern for The Aspirations Pullover, I use two rows of this stitch to make the edging. Go check it out!
